PNSN Pacific Northwest Earthquake Information
Information on Pacific Northwest earthquake activity and hazards is provided by the Pacific Northwest Seismograph Network (PNSN), which operates seismograph stations and locates earthquakes in Washington and Oregon. The PNSN is operated jointly by the University of Washington, the University of Oregon, and Oregon State University and is funded by the US Geological Survey (USGS), the Department of Energy, and the State of Washington. The PNSN is based at the Geophysics Program of the University of Washington in Seattle, and is a member of the Council of the National Seismic Systems (CNSS), a group of regional network operators who cooperate to locate and catalog earthquakes throughout the United States.

Earthquake Information
The catalogs are for earthquakes of magnitude 2 or greater.
